Inside A Mountain: walking real and imaginary landscape with Charlie Lee-Potter

Artist, broadcaster and writer Charlie Lee-Potter takes contemplative walks with a musician, artist, writer or scientist. The name comes from writer Nan Shepherd’s haunting phrase that ‘a mountain has an inside’ - walking isn’t to accumulate miles or conquer peaks but to immerse yourself in landscape. Every episode evokes place with a complex, mixed soundscape.
